Health Profiles

The Health Profiles online tool

The Local Authority Health Profiles provide an overview of health for each local authority in England. They pull together existing information in one place and contain data on a range of indicators for local populations, highlighting issues that can affect health in each locality.
The profiles are intended to help local government and health services make plans to improve the health of their local population and reduce health inequalities.

What is produced?

  • A Local Authority Health Profile pdf report that is available to download. This is updated annually, usually in July.
  • The Health Profiles online tool that provides access to the latest available data. Indicators are made available in the online tool at the same time they are published in other fingertips profiles. The May release of the tool provides the information for the pdf report.

The data can be accessed by clicking the ‘START, Go to the data’ button. Data in the online tool are grouped into seven domains. All indicators are displayed together in a single list under the heading ‘All spine chart indicators’.
